This is a super simple sauce to make and puts any canned one to shame! I’m a firm believer that lasagna is only as good as it’s sauce, so lets just say that this sauce makes a wicked lasagna ( recipe coming soon!) Mmmm, I’m getting hungry.
1 1/2-2 med. onions
4 cloves of garlic
1 kilo ground beef
2 lg. cans of tomato sauce
1 lg. can tomatoes
1 tbsp. oregano
1 tbsp. basil
2 tbsp. good quality balsamic vinegar
1. Saute onions in a little bit of olive oil. Cook until they’re transparent and getting soft. Add the diced garlic (or use a garlic press) and sauté a few more minutes.
The secret ingredient to make the sauce nice and rich. Balsalmic Vinegar!
2. Add the ground beef ( you could also use turkey) and cook until it’s not pink anymore and a little brown. Drain off any excess oil.
3. Add the tomato sauce, tomatoes, basil, oregano. and balsamic vinegar. *The last time I made this I accidentally bought crushed tomatoes rather than diced tomatoes. It was much thicker and a little gummy. I don’t recommend it!
4. Let it simmer for a couple of hours uncovered. Stir with a wooden spoon every few minutes to make sure it’s not sticking to the bottom of the pot.
